Haiti Pastor Training Mission
Hey glory! Dear Prayer-Partners,
"I exhort therefore, that, first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty" (I Timothy 2:1-3). For sure...both of our countries need prayer for those in authority. The U.S. and Haiti are both in turmoil. We need to pray!
TYPICAL DAY?? I get asked from time to time what a typical day is like for me in Haiti. My response is, when I have one I will let you know. Example...I got an early start in my workshop working on a project for a country church. I got a call about a person who was very ill, who could not walk or sit on a motorcycle. I left my workshop, headed to the country and picked up the person, along with two others to help her, and took her to the hospital. They could not do all the tests that day so they said she had to stay overnight. It was my good thinking wife that reminded the doctor that the next two days were holidays in Haiti and nothing would be open. He realized his mistake and then I took the patient back to their home in the country, then returned home late in the afternoon. Same routine three days later but we are thankful she is doing much better.
GASOLINE: I had only the gas in the tank and thought I had enough to get to the country church and back. The low fuel light went on before I got up the mountain. On the way back, I was watching the gas gauge and the tachometer, trying to always keep the rpms below 2000. I kept looking and looking at the gas gauge and it seemed like it was not moving. I felt like the widow with Elijah in I Kings 17 when her cruse of oil did not run out. By the grace of God we made it back!
You may have read that gas are in the pumps in our capital once again. We only have two questions for gas here in Jeremie...how long before it will get out here and if it does, will they really sell it to the gas pumps or stop outside of town and sell it on the black market like they were doing before? We are thankful that the price we are paying on street has been cut in half...$20 per gallon instead of the $40 we were paying before!
We can say we are back in full swing in ministry...buying gas where we can and usually being able to find some. Actually a little busier than normal as trying to make up for some lost time from before.
ROAD PROJECT: The community did a road project to repair the area where Ceres went over the steep bank. Over 60 people involved. Everyone worked, the little kids and even some of Ceres' widows. They carried sand, rocks and water. It was a great time, the road is done and they all had a great meal.
BIRTHDAY: I had another birthday party! The church where Ceres' family goes said they did not get a chance to celebrate my birthday on September 18 so they chose to celebrate it on October 18. What a wonderful time! I was given lots of fruit, a chicken, and that night someone brought me a huge fish!
FOOD: We delivered a truckload of food to another mountain church yesterday. It is such a blessing to know we can help each family eat for two to three weeks on the food they got.
We are blessed to see the Lord working in people's lives and we are blessed to have all of you helping us.
God bless you all,

"But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother have a need, and shuts up his feelings of compassion from him, how does the love of God dwell in that person?"
